When Two People Fall in Love

Two posts today! Consider yourselves lucky! I wrote this very quickly during a conversation with someone special. Normally, I save these poems for her, but I want to post this one so I am. Something clicked in me while we were talking and I felt a little bad while writing it because I was going…

Prose Poem

I hate prose poetry, but maybe I like this? I had to write one for a tiny text class and came up with this in a fit of writer’s block. To get out of it, I decided to just write how I felt about the genre, or lack of genre(?), instead. So tell me: Do…

Riley

I wrote this poem for one of my best friends. I loved writing this as much as I loved him. I’m sure you know we all miss you! Riley It took the entire day to convince him to take me on a walk. I wanted to explore the neighborhood and what goes on beyond the…

One Moment

A little girly, but I’ve been coming up with a lot of nice lines to work with lately. My original intent was to somehow put them into a story, but I think they fit better like this. You be the judge. Enjoy. One Moment One moment, a smile, is all I need to run away…

Free

I wrote this while listening to Free (extended version) by Zac Brown Band. I don’t apologize for stealing the title. I have to write a ten page story, and another monologue based off a stranger’s characteristics for class so as soon as I get that done, I’ll post those here. The monologue is due sooner,…

Last Time

I’m not sure how I feel about how repetitive this is. At first I was just intending on free writing, but it turned into another poem. I decided yesterday I’m going to take a break from all this–not writing, but the inspiration behind these poems and stories–and focus on making myself happy. We’ll see how…

Walden Poetry

I’m going to do something very different. A while ago, I saw someone was picking words from each line every page of Infinite Jest and turning them into poems. I’m going to try to do the same, but with Walden. I’ll try it with one page to start and see how it goes. Try it with your favorite…

I’m Ready, Are You?

I don’t know what to call this. Some sort of combination between free writing and free verse. Poetic free writing? Does that make sense? Either way, it’s a mess, like myself right now. So much is going on and I’m in zero control. All I can do is buckle up. The journey hasn’t been easy…

Can You Believe It?

Like many of my posts, I wasn’t going to post this, because it would just be weird (it still might be, but I don’t care). Then I realized I shouldn’t feel weird about how I feel in the first place. That’s why I write, and that’s why I have a writing blog: to express how…
